Hours later a court of law Greta Thunberg, the climate activist for disobeying police last month, was removed from a demonstration in Malmö, Sweden.
Thunberg – along with more than a dozen activists – blocked the road on Monday to the oil port, holding a sign that said “I block oil trucks.” “He was forcibly removed” by the police, according to Reuters.
Earlier, a lower court ordered Thunberg to pay a little over €129 fine and €86 to the Crime Victim Fund for refusing to stop blocking fuel trucks in Malmö in June. “We cannot save the world by following the law,” he said of the ruling.
Thunberg, now 20, has been the face of a global youth movement since she began protesting in front of the Swedish parliament in 2018 while still in high school. As other youth activists joined in, the protests turned into the international Fridays for Future movement. He was named TIME’s person of the year in 2019 for drawing global attention to climate action.
“The climate crisis does not care about things like this. I’m not upset about it,” Thunberg he said Monday to reporters about his removal.
